Superboy: Dream child of gay men everywhere
I was just looking at the preview of Superboy #1, which only holds my interest because of Jeff Lemire. I had never really thought about it before, but his basic origin is a gay dream come true.

This is an excellent article on the representation of gays in mainstream comics, but it’s easily applicable to queer representation in all media. “Here’s the great gay paradox; homophobia is best tackled by greater gay visibility, and gay visibility is held back because of homophobia – most notably the pernicious claim that homosexuality does not belong in any medium that might be...
